You see, I have a bit of a problem. School is back in full swing. This morning I had my very first exam since February and my legs are aching from the start of Fall soccer season. And yet, I can't seem to focus. I've been spending my time the way that I want to: reading Vogue, scrolling through endless photos of New York Fashion Week, and making sure that I'm all caught up on the newest episode of The Rachel Zoe Project. I know that I should be reading an article about Chilean coal production right now, but I can't. I just cannot bring myself to do it. I seem to have lost all motivation towards procuring an acceptable GPA and am instead spending too much time and money on other things.
These pictures are a perfect example of where my head is. The sun's rays casting longs shadows across the sand, perfect and comfortable stripes keeping her warm against the coming chill of dusk. I so want to see natural light right now, instead of being stuck in a windowless room with a concrete floor (No, this isn't prison. It's just my work-study job.).
So it's a constant struggle. It's beautiful outside but I am stuck very much inside, doing work. I am interested a world far beyond math and science, but my busy schedule doesn't allow me to explore it. It's a balancing act, but I'm not sure how much I like it.
What kind of circus act is going on for you?
